About Alexander Garbe

Alexander Garbe is the founder and owner of Stilwerk GmbH in Hamburg.

Alexander Garbe developed a keen interest in art and design during his studies of Management System Science at the City University Business School in London. It was here that he began his passion for collecting expressive, contemporary art. His collection has grown extensively in the meantime. 

The support of young artists and designers is very important to him. This is also illustrated by stilwerk GmbH’s support of young designers with the management of the Raymond Loewy Foundation.
